    Unfortunately uidhash_lock cannot be used from a bottom half either.

    You can push it into a work queue. See schedule_work() and the default
    events queue.

    Yep. Everyone architecture I know of - and certainly all that Linux
    support - can do atomic read/writes to a word. Thinking about it, it
    would be odd if not (two writes to a single word interleaving?). There
    are places this assumption is used.

    Anything more complicated, of course, needs atomic operations or locks.
